I think you can find the answers from Windows Internals. It gives the
introduction to Windows Memory Map in details.

hello folks,

  1. on 32bit windows, even if we have < 4gb installed, would kernel processes
    get a virtual memory address of >2gb? is the mapping start addrss constant
    for usr and kernel? that is kernel space will always start at 0x80000000
    unless /3gb switch is specified?

  2. how do these values change for 64bit? what are the defaults for user and

  3. since the /3gb switch is meaningless can we change the defaults for
    winxp64 and vista?
